Are Federal Contractors Included in the 2023 Federal Pay Raise?

Are federal contractors included in the 2023 federal pay raise?

Q: The 2023 federal pay raise appears that it will be an overall average of 4.6%. Are federal contractors included in this pay raise increase? I am a supervisor who has a staff of nine people and my yearly salary is 53k, which makes no sense. I look forward to any information you can provide.

A: Federal contractors are not included in the 2023 pay raise. A company may decide to provide a raise to its employees, but the executive order that will come out in the next few days does not include any employees outside of the federal government.
